Kahentinetha Horn Slams Assembly of First Nations with Cease and Desist Order -- AFN Sellouts are Indian Act Puppets Engaged in Genocide

Kahentinetha Horn issued a cease and desist order to the Assembly of First Nations.
Kahentinetha, Bear Clan of Kahnewake, said, "My Covenant is with the Natural World."
"You have no right to interfere with the lives of our people," Kahentinetha told AFN.
Kahentinetha said AFN is comprised of Indian Act sellouts engaged in genocide.
"Canada may have convinced some foolish Indians to sell us out and extinguish our inherent rights, but we as sovereign people are not on the common market."
Kahentinetha said AFN is illegitimate and has forfeited its Native name, land and birthright.
"We will always teach our children who they are and to watch out for people like you," she said.

CBC reports:
The grassroots opposition to the legislation burst onto the assembly floor on Tuesday morning after Bennett's speech when Kahnawake Elder Kahentinetha Horn read out a cease and desist order aimed at the AFN and Bennett over the legislation.
Horn said in an interview that the proposed legislation is "dangerous" and the AFN along with band council chiefs have no authority to discuss rights.
"Canada doesn't have land because it's all ours," said Horn, who has been involved in Indigenous rights activism since the 1960s.
"It's the sudden rush and push of secret meetings and hiding something from us…. We are the people of Turtle Island. They are Canadian government employees, they work for committees called band councils."
